Never Enough Wool
With the weather going up and down, we can all be excused for wondering what to wear. In that vein, Carol and I have been making cowls, scarves, summer tops and layering pieces. If we don’t wear them tomorrow, well, there’s always later in the summer or perhaps even autumn. I should also warn you all that **THAT** holiday is only six months away! I promise not to whine about how fast the time flies…
As has been happening
for the past while, we have FOUR – count ‘em!
FOUR -- new colours of Classic
Elite Liberty Wool! They
are called Kalahari Sunset, Lavendar Mist, Blue Sienna and Cherry Delight. We
have more pretty patterns and even more ideas. Help us! We need to knit them
While we were at it, we found room to introduce 8 colours of Berocco Peruvia Quick—a bulky weight beauty for all your arm knitting and cozy winter knits.
The second summer weight yarn is also courtesy of Elsebeth Lavold. It is the Hempathy, a hemp/cotton blend that is perfect for all those dog days of summer tops of which we were all dreaming during those long, cold winter months.
June 13th is World Wide Knit In Public day! The Scugog Fibre Artists have set up an 8-person group knit at the Gazebo in Palmer Park from 10am to 2 pm. Bring your knitting and join them either as knitting support or as participants in the group knit. No experience necessary!
Before I forget, I should also mention that we have received new 4ply Opal sock yarn and some of the prettiest self-striping 8-ply sock yarns that I’ve ever seen. I was going to keep that to myself but now realize that it would be way too selfish not to share!
And we are pleased to report that both Barb and Carol are battling mightily some pretty severe cases of Startitis. Right now Carol is looking at no less than 3 new projects, and Barb is also considering three new projects. If only the sock yarn would arrive they could both start something pretty and big!
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for your class before class time. Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm. Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons. Our next class session is June 12, at 10:30 am. The plan will be to meet and start the panel in question and then for homework, finish the panel to be ready for the next month. There are ten colour panels, a class to discuss seaming, and another class to discuss the borders. Cost is $25, plus materials and book.
Cables – Irish Hiking Scarf -- Interested in learning how to work cables? This is the class for you. The scarf is lovely and useful, and we can assist you in working up a hat and/or a pair of mittens. (This might be a great holiday gift, by the way!) We will begin on June 2, again at either 1:00 or 7:00 pm, and continue through the month. Cost is $25 plus materials (estimated to be 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn/wool).
Trinity Stitch Variation Cowl—This little number features a moebius twist and a brand new (for us) stitch technique. This cowl uses worsted weight or dk weight yarn. Get a head start on gifts for **THAT** holiday or maybe just make a beautiful treat for yourself! August’s class is $25 plus materials.
In The Pink Shawl – September class is a shawl that uses a simple yarn-over technique to great effect! Wow all your friends with this stylish yet simple project! Cost is $25 plus materials ( approximately 2 skeins of your favourite sock weight yarn)
Sit ‘n Stitch: Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3. Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter. Everyone is welcome!
Saturday Stitching: Every Saturday, from 2 until 4. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?
Knitting Night: Every Thursday, from 7 until 9. Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed. There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
